Found the problem. I was probably too sleepy last time I started
complining the kernel because I had disabled the network support.
Enabling it solved all my problems. I got a hint as X wouldn't start as
it couldn't talk to any sockets it said and there where no mention of
/dev/console in /etc/syslog.conf. 

So thanks!
